Regular check-in hours are 3pm to 8pm the day of your first appointment. Check-in details will be determined when your reservation is confirmed.
Nope! Our communal areas are open for use during the day for patients and caregivers to use as well. We have laundry facilities and a full bathroom available for day use for guests, so if you need a quick break from the hospital come on down and ask for a guest pass.
Get a load of this – we have no maximum! As long as you are still eligible, you can make a reservation for as long as you are in treatment.
We require a check-out date, but we understand things may come up, so we do our best to accommodate extension requests. Communication is key! The earlier you let us know you may need to extend, the higher the likelihood we can make it happen.
Each family suite can fit four people.
You betchya! For day guests, you may have people visit from the hours of 7:30AM to 8:00PM and they are required to stay in common areas of the house (first two floors). For overnight guests, be sure to register them with an Ulman House Staff member a day in advance. For the safety of all of our guests, we will be doing background checks on all overnight guests.
Yep! We have ample street parking, but if parallel parking isn’t your thing, we also have spots available in a nearby lot for our guests.
At Ulman House, along with our stocked communal kitchen, you will be assigned your own mini fridge with a lock and a dry food container just for you.
Yes! We love getting mail and we’re sure you will too. Packages will be held at the front office and mail can be collected from the mail cart.

Our wonderful housekeeper works everyday to ensure that our House is looking its best. Private suites are not our housekeepers responsibility, so don’t forget to clean your own space.

There sure are. We have a fitness center, music room, and library all ready for you to use.
We also have monthly Young Adult support groups that we call “Where YA Meet”s and monthly activity hours. Stay updated on the schedule by stopping by the Ulman House Staff office (to say “hi” of course) and to check out the schedule of events.
From Our Residents
“Staying at Ulman House did two things for me; it gave me a support system of individuals who were going through similar experiences to engage with and provided me a way to decompress through volunteer activities after I completed treatment each day.”
“What Ulman has done for us is: to help us use our resources to care for our daughter, to give us a place where we feel safe, and to give us a place that we don’t feel alone in the really frightening battle to save her life. We are so grateful!”
“Thank you so much for supporting me and my family during this difficult time. My prolonged treatment plan would have necessitated the need to find housing for at least 2 consecutive months. Not only did Ulman provide housing & financial assistance but indirectly, emotional support by connecting me to a community & second family during treatment.”
